How to Get Testimonials When You First Start Teaching Manners to Children

How to Get Testimonials When You Are First Starting Out

Today I am sharing the what, when and how of getting testimonials when you are first starting your business teaching manners to children.

Let’s talk about why you need testimonials.  Testimonials allow for your community to speak on your behalf.  You need social proof of who you are. 

Having testimonials gives your potential client the opportunity to know, like and trust you. Parents, teachers and organizations need to see what it is like having you teach their children manners.  They need to know what it is like doing business with you.

Did You Know….

  • You don’t have to have “client” reviews.  When you are first starting out, you can include testimonials from those that know you. For example, your daughter’s teacher, or a former employer or a peer.
  • You don’t have to use a testimonial verbatim.  You can shorten it or use the most relevant sentences.
  • If you have a website, you do not need to have a dedicated testimonial page. You can use testimonials throughout the site or on your Facebook page or other social media channels.

What Types of Testimonials Do You Need?

Ideally, you need testimonials from:

Parents:  When you provide private instructions or when their children are in a class of yours, ask them about their experience.

Educators: As you provide school assemblies, classroom programs or after school programs, ask for testimonials.

Troops: Girl Scout programs are thrilled to have etiquette experts come and speak to their troop.  You can ask parents for testimonials or troop leaders.

Peers:  Look for those individuals that know you and are well-respected in the community. 

What Should Testimonials Say About an Etiquette Expert?

When requesting a testimonial, ask them to write about:

  • Their child’s experience
  • Your teaching style
  • How organized you are
  • How engaging you were
  • How much the children learned and are now using at home or in the classroom

How To Get Testimonials When You are an Etiquette Expert

I bet you already know what I am going to tell you:  ASK!

That’s it.  Ask.  You will never get them if you don’t ask.

You will love this interview.  

Today, you will find an interview with a former art teacher.  If you are like me, you will appreciate her answers to all of the questions.  They are deep and creative.

We welcome Peggy Robinson to the Manners To Go list of licensees. 

Peggy starts off filling us in on how she found Manners To Go.  I love it when she talks about how she asked herself “why reinvent the wheel” when someone has already done everything for you!  That is one of the reasons why she chose Manners To Go. 

We are an “already done for you” system.

You will also love hearing her answer to who she would have on her list for afternoon tea.  This was my favorite part of the interview.  You must listen.

Stay tuned as we keep you updated on Peggy’s progress.  As soon as her website is up and running, we will provide the link.

Studies shows that higher levels of emotional intelligence are linked with better leadership skills

Educators are looking for consultants and curriculums that prepare students for adult life which include life skills. 

According to Goggle Education Here is What’s happening?

 “91% of CEOs globally report they need to strengthen their organization’s soft skills to sit alongside digital skills. 

Manners Classes for Charter Schools

Etiquette Certification: What You Need to Know About Our Curriculum and Lesson Plans

 

Etiquette Certification: What You Need to Know About Our Curriculum and Lesson Plans

Earlier this week, we provided more details for a new licensee.  She asked really good questions and I would like share my answers.
 
1. Is the curriculum provided as kits?
The curriculum is not in a “kit” form. It is much more flexible and one of the greatest benefits of Manners To Go. The curriculum is sent via electronic download.  You will then be able to pick and choose the modules and customize the curriculum according to your needs.
 
You decide upon the modules needed for each class and print activity books accordingly.
Lesson plan introductions
 
For example, a Girl Scout troop may want a program to earn a badge.  You will customize the modules/activity books to meet their badge requirement.
 
 An after school program might be 8 weeks. You will tailor the program to meet the demand of the particular class being taught.  A parent might request special attention be paid to eye contact and basic social skills. You will take the modules and create activity books specific to their needs.
 
A High School may request a program centered around “career day”.  You will have all the necessary materials to provide this content according to the needs of the students.
 
2. What have you seen as the most beneficial topics for the children?
As you know, when you teach children good manners, you equip them with valuable skills to become happy, healthy and well-adjusted adults.  
 
While teaching Manners To Go over the years, I have seen children transform and benefit most from the lessons on eye contact and table manners.  Their confidence level increases when they learn social skills.  I have seen an immediate difference after one session of Manners To Go.  Parents and teachers notice it in their behaviors too.

Your Etiquette Business: Already Done for You

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? 

Wouldn’t it be nice to have everything prepared for you?

In today’s world that is completely possible.

Over the years my husband and I have been accustomed to small gatherings at Thanksgiving….because we did not live near family.  At the time, my husband traveled extensively so spending time at home was a blessing.

We recently moved….near family.  Life has changed!  This year, Thanksgiving is at my new home with 15 family members….yes, from just the two of us to fifteen.

Some of you may know that I absolutely love to cook.  It is one of my passions.

As much as I love to cook…this year with 15 coming for lunch, I am buying Thanksgiving in a box…so to speak!!!!!
